    Coaching Program Registration

    The YWL coaching program encourages and promotes the retention of women in the legal profession by providing the members of YWL with access to experienced/certified coaches. Our coaches are experienced in coaching lawyers and are members of the legal community. 

    Coaching refers to a thought-provoking and creative partnership between a member and a coach that inspires such member to maximize her personal and professional potential, often unlocking previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.

    Specifically, coaching may help a member identify strengths and values, recognize challenges, develop career plans, enhance career skill development and create a balance between work and personal life, among other things. 

    This Members Only program offers members the chance to connect one-on-one with certified coaches on a variety of topics at no additional cost. Coaching spots are limited and are offered on a first come first served basis

    The details:

    Registration Period: Begins Monday, January 3, 2022
